Today is my husband's birthday. One of his favorite meals is spaghetti with meat sauce. Simple and plain. Instead of making spaghetti for his birthday I wanted to mix things up a bit and make this bow tie lasagna dish. It is has all the tasty ingredients that are in my spaghetti except it's made with bowtie pasta and lots of yummy cheese. Super simple and made over the stove top instead of baking in the oven. It was a hit with the hubster!
